Depression, burnout, and psychosomatic disease evolve owing to chronic stress due to the profession of healthcare workers. The diagnosis and management of burnout is a challenge. Although burnout is similar to depression, it fails to meet any of the latter’s diagnostic criteria. The affected individual might commit suicide if not appropriately managed. Interventions to the individual might have, besides institutional improvements by the inclusion of the institutional management to process, beneficial effects on the prevention of burnout.
